Everyone works at their own pace. While some enjoy the space to plot and plan, other like a deadline breathing down their necks. While still more people fall right in the middle and prefer neither too short nor too long a time to get something done. In this installment of our resources blog, I bring you three opportunities. One has a deadline that is but a breath away, one ever so slightly down the road and the third with over a month of luxurious time before final submissions are due. Pick your poison below.

At Praxis Center we know full well that not all artist work alike. While some may require the quiet of time, others prefer the chaos of immediacy to produce their best work or to motivate themselves to get things done. No one type is superior to the next, all are equal and valid. We know this because we are a staff made up of individuals who also differ, who are motivated by various things and time frames. And when you join, you connect with each of us for a wide view of the many ways in which to approach your burgeoning art career.
